vases with naked ladies.

Hello, picked up a pair of these vases very cheaply, they stand 21.5cms high and have 3 naked ladies around the side, all with slightly different arm positions, obviously modern but I'd be interested in finding out the age and maker if possible, glass is clear.  thanks in anticipation, Gill

I've seen them on ebay. I can't remember how much they sold for, but, if I can remember them being on there, they were definetly worth more than 50p.  :lol:

I just sold two of those for $4.99.  I looked at the buyer's feedback and he collects them, he's paid anywhere from my little $4.99 on up to $30.00.

Hello,

Ummm...  those are not vases, but were made by Libbey for tavern supply companies and drinks were served in them at night clubs, where the drinker was supposed to keep the glass. --- Mike

Mike's right, they are drinking glasses.  Forgot to mention that.

Now that is interesting! I did look at them and thought it would be possible to drink from them, especially when I heard they were made by Libby. Are they all the same design? Or are some different? How many of these would anyone want , nice as they are? Anyone any idea when they were made.  thanks to all, Gill :)

Gill,

I don't know for sure if your Libbey glasses were done in different versions or not, since I didn't really pay much attention to them back in the 80s when clubs were offering these glasses along with their drink special of the day, which in many cases had a name related to something sexual. Most people never kept them, although they were allowed to, since the price of the drink covered the glass. I have seen some that were nude men and woman torsos, but I'm not sure if they were made by Libbey too. I think many people who collect bar & tavern related glasses might have the most interest in these items, but those I know who are into this type of collecting are rarely interested is who made what etc., like a serious glass collector might be, but instead they collect these items because they like them is all, a memento of a night out on the town maybe, or just as novelty items to display in their homes, some of which have an area set up like a bar. --- Mike

I know that they were given a number of different names, like Dancing Nymphs, Dancing Nudes, Dance of the Nudes, La Femme and Baby Dolls.
They are also sold as a julep glass, although that doesn't mean a thing to me (forgive my ignorance  :oops:  )

For the rest, I do not know  :cry:  sorry.
